High Fiber—Back to Whatever is "Normal"

Lynda has finished her Dogwood Blossoms!

She's the first one in our group of four or so to finish it. She wore it to our Common Threads meeting on Thursday. Mine is close to finished (has been for a long time), and I plan to get it done during the Ravellenic Games. 

Here is the…

High Fiber—Cold and Colds, Mishaps and Repairs

It's been a hard week in the mountains of Utah. The weather was part of it. 

That was taken Wednesday. We had several more inches over the weekend. I had to turn off the alerts on my weather app, because it kept waking me up at night and annoying me during the daytime. (As if I couldn't just…

Common Threads met at Georgette's this week, and we had some varied projects. Margareth had finished this woven wrap:

High Fiber—Back To Normal?

The two days it took to get home from Indiana provided great knitting time!

 

I made good progress on the Dogwood Blossoms sweater, about 1" of the pattern. I put it on two circs, so you can see…

High Fiber—Second Baby Syndrome

I finally got the buttons on the BSJ for Baby Stuart, the one due in June:

 

 

This BSJ is identical to the one I made for Zachary except for the color way, which is probably why it took so long. Also, I wasn't under as much pressure to finish it. There has also been some progress on the diaper bag for the same baby:

High Fiber—Travel and UFOs.

On blog day last week (aka "Talk Like a Pirate Day" and DH's birthday), we were driving home from Mesquite, Nevada, where we overnighted on our way back from San Diego. I spent the day riding shotgun and working on my TAU (Therapy Animals of Utah) Socks, the perfect color to go with my uniform shirt, which I wear when Sunny and I visit the nursing home. I finished the socks after we got home.



We had a great time in San Diego, where we had…

Snow, Snow, Snow...

As usual for this time of year, we're still getting snow! Here's something white I'm happy to see, though:





As you can see, im making good progress on the lace gown for Daphne's naming ceremony. I have nearly 2 1/2 months to finish it. It's a fun project, and is going well, now that I have sort of learned the pattern. You repeat a 34-st pattern across for four rows, repeat…

This was so much fun, and I love the colors, I decided to make a purse to match. Only it will be all green, no brown. Here's what I have so far, with the fabric I bought for lining:…
